    if YOU (the reader) wants a more in-depth and over-all assessment (beating my drum here) --> check a recent (as of April 2014) post @ http://www.betunada.wordpress.com with notes on Volcan Rincon and (quite) nearby Rio Negro Hot Springs. we just were driving by and pulled in and were easily and effortlessly checked in. breakfast (and it was good) included -- my kids paid but i think it was about $60/night per room! Dinner was buffet and good, also. I think we were most impressed by the ambiance, "the vibe" if you will, of the place. We were tired from a day hiking at the Volcan and were really ready to just throttle back and be waited on. Like other reviewers said, this is somewhat "basic" -- but, hey! do you want to kick back and relax and soak in the ambiance or find the internet and be mentally elsewhere? i would like to return and stay a few more days -- hike to some hot springs a couple miles away, jog the trails, and use this as a base to be more ambitious in regards hiking Rincon. And -- it's not far to Rio Negro Hot Springs.

    Room Tip: we should have taken one of the (slightly) more remote cabins -- there are a few of these (well, more than "a few") but still close. we were in the main motel-like buiding, mostly because we had two small kids.

    This is exactly what it states, it is a mountain lodge, rustic but comfortable. The rooms are basic but its not pricey. Its clean and in a very nice surrounding, the staff are super friendly and hospitable, and we really enjoyed our meals which were very tasty and good value. It is quiet and very close to the park headquarters for great hikes.

    The spacious cabins were basic...but who cares....the location was wonderful. Ponies wander over the site and you wake up to hear them outside your window. The bathrooms only seem to have cold water...but this is refreshing on a hot day. The lake has resident frogs which hop over the walkways at night. The stars are plentiful and the pool clean and refreshing.
    The horse riding tour to the waterfall was wonderful and the horses were well cared for and very willing. The walk to the hot springs is supposed to take 45 minutes but took us 90 minutes and that was a hard walk. The facilities there are adequate though and if you enjoy walking it is a pleasant way to spend an afternoon. We spent two nights here and could have happily stayed longer. The National Park is closed on Mondays. The restaurant food was not great but it was adequate and although in theory there was only red meat on offer the manager came up with some fish when requested.

    The lodge is located on beautiful peaceful grounds and is conveniently located close to the park. The park also is a hidden gem in Costa Rica as it is much less crowded but just as beautiful as other parks.
    The staff is amazing and go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. The manager lived in the states and many other countries and really knows what travelers want. I have traveled all over the world and the staff here is really top notch. They are so welcoming you will want to stay longer.
    If you enjoy nature, birdwatching, or want some to get away from the tourist crowds and enjoy a natural beautiful setting in Costa Rica come here.

    We were traveling with our 9 month old son who still needs a couple of (hot) bottles per day. They do not have a microwave, so my boyfriend had to go sit in the car with the bottle heater for 30min every time we needed a bottle. Our room was horrible, no hot water and way too many disgusting bugs and insects. We did not see this when we got there and they did not mention the fact that the room had no hot water and they saw we were traveling with a baby. And they asked 70$ for the room :/ We stayed in much nicer places for less during our trip.
    When I asked for a guided tour of the park, they said they only had tours in Spanish. This is kinda weird since a lot of tourist don't speak Spanish and everywhere we went, you always had the option of English or Spanish. I would definitely not recommend this hotel for families.
